Frequently Asked Questions

About Greenlandic Culture

1. What are the must-see's about Greenlandic culture?

Kayaks are still used for hunting in the far north and there are recreational kayak clubs all around the country. Kayaking tours in Greenland use Western plastic seakayaks for safety reasons, but these are, after all, developed with inspiration from Inuit kayaks.

The dogsled is used in everyday life for hunting, fishing and transportation, in regions above the Arctic Circle. There are various dogsledding tours, from 2-hour experiences to week-long expedition type trips. 

There are archaeological remains all over the country, well preserved by the cold climate. The Inuit people have crossed over to Greenland from Alaska and Arctic Canada, from 4500 years ago. Such ruins are seldom marked in Greenland, but there are very many, and your guide will point them out to you on a hike, or even when you are walking the outskirts of town. In South Greenland and Nuuk Fjord, there are numerous Viking ruins from 1000 years ago. 

Inuit stories, crafts and drum dancing are ancient arts that have been handed down many generations. Arts of more recent heritage are abundant too, such as the Greenlandic choir and beautiful beads handicraft. Greenlandic tradition and motifs are alive in modern arts, such as theatre, music, handicraft, paintings and much more.

2. Are there many museums in Greenland?

Greenland has a very good network of museums, and every town has their local museum. Many are small, but all have interesting exhibitions from their area, both historical and archeological. In the capital Nuuk there are three: the National Museum, Art Museum and Local Museum. Check opening hours, as many museums are not open all day, or everyday. In some towns they may open outside hours if you contact them in advance.

3. How can I try traditional Greenlandic food?

Most restaurants have dishes that use fresh local material. There are some fantastic culinary experiences, especially around Nuuk, Ilulissat or Kangerlussuaq, which fuse Nordic, European or Asian cooking, with a wide variety of fantastic Greenlandic material straight from the pristine nature.

It is not so easy for the traveller to come across traditional Greenlandic cooking. H8 in Oqaastut, the settlement north of Ilulissat, is a good place to experience Greenlandic dishes. Kalaliaraq in Nuuk serves Greenland food the Greenlandic way, with a sophisticated presentation. 

Some tours in smaller towns and settlements include a meal with a local family. The staple food of the Arctic is seal, found abundantly anywhere. Traditional cooking in Greenland is to boil meat in salt water, often together with onions, and rice or potatoes. Dried fish and meat is made everywhere. This is often eaten with ‘mattak’, whale skin and blubber which is extremely rich in vitamin C. This is an Arctic delicacy where no edible vegetation grows for 9 months of the year.
